MUSCLETECH AFTER BUILD
- Post-workout formula increases strength and helps with recovery
- Better than regular BCAA’s at building lean muscle
MuscleTech Lab Series After Build is packed with 6g of 100% free-acid BCAAs including the clinically studied 4g dose of highly anabolic leucine.
Leucine is a key dietary amino acid that has the capacity to stimulate muscle protein synthesis.* It does this by stimulating your body’s master protein synthesis regulator, mTOR.* Each scoop of After Build is packed with 4g of leucine, and this 4g dose is the exact amount of this highly anabolic amino acid shown in a clinical study to help subjects increase their strength.
This study was published in the International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance. Read the full research paper: Ispoglou et al., 2011. International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance. 6(1):3850.
What’s more, in a separate gold-standard clinical study, the 1g dose of taurine found in After Build was shown to improve performance in endurance athletes.
BUILD MORE LEAN MUSCLE
Betaine is one of the most exciting muscle building compounds on the market today. Researchers believe betaine has many mechanisms of action in the body. Betaine acts as an osmoprotectant, protecting muscle cells against dehydration by acting as an osmolyte, which increases the water retention of cells.Research suggests that a well hydrated cell can support better anabolism and as a bonus, betaine also helps your body synthesize creatine in skeletal muscles!*
Researchers have put betaine to the test and the results are incredible making it a must-have supplement for anyone serious about building muscle. In one gold-standard clinical study, test subjects who supplemented with the exact 2.5g dose of betaine found in 1 scoop of After Build built 3.75 lbs. of lean muscle in 6 weeks compared to 0.66 lbs. by the placebo group. What’s more, test subjects actually increased arm size, as measured by a cross-sectional area (49.5 to 54.1 cm2)!
IMPROVED RECOVERY & ATP REGENERATION
Recovering quickly is critical, especially when you’re training hard and pushing your muscles to their limits! Knowing how important recovery is and the importance of increasing training frequency for muscle gains, MuscleTech researchers included a full 3g of creatine in each scoop of After Build to help your muscle cells regenerate ATP.* When you increase your body’s ability to supply ATP, you increase your muscles capacity to do work and improve the energy efficiency of your muscles.*
Creatine has been extensively researched for its benefits in increasing muscle strength, power and enhancing recovery during training.* Research published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that a dosage of 3g of creatine daily for about a month is required to saturate muscles, resulting in increased muscle strength, increased performance and enhanced muscle size. Many recovery products include less than this ideal amount! With After Build, you get a full dose of creatine in the form of ultra-pure, HPLC-tested creatine monohydrate and creatine HCI.
After Build also features a 2g dose of glutamine to help restore plasma glutamine levels that may have been depleted after periods of intense training.
